Wednesday Open Line

The Philadelphia Flower Show — the largest such indoor event in the world — winds up this weekend. Two-hundred sixty-five thousand visitors are expected to have attended by the time the show closes on Sunday. The Philadelphia show started in 1829 and now covers 33 acres. The show now under way features the horticultural heritage of Great Britain, famous for roses and gardening. In the U.S., close to 70 percent of households take part in some form of gardening. To aid them, across America there are over 12,000 flower, nursery stock and supply wholesalers sustaining the country’s flower shops and garden centers. You can find more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau, online at <www.census.gov>.

    What would happen to the crime rate in Henderson if landlords could refuse to rent to people with criminal records? Would the criminal element move on? Would landlords lose a huge part of their revenue? Would fewer investors ask for special use permits for new apartment complexes?

    Just a thought.

    Interesting that the proposal for the new apartments for Graham Avenue, which may have been turned down, those managers of that facility say they screen for criminal records, and will not lease to anyone who has one, and will ask anyone that obtains that status after moving in, to move out.

    Did the apartments indeed get turned down? I didn’t see that in the paper–hope it is true. We need a moratorium on any new apartments, in my opinion.

    Did residence on Graham Avenue sway to members of the Henderson zoning board or are they the two bright lights at the end of a long tunnel of government subsidized?

    I understand why Sara Coffey favors more government subsidized housing, there is has a higher potential for customers for her bail bond business. What is the excuse for the other three?

    What is says to me is that when it comes up again–more people must show up to protest any further low income housing at this time. Make a difference–and this will send a message that we aren’t happy with the direction we’re going now.

    What is done in any area affects many people and businesses. Watch for the notice in the Dispatch–last time the paper had the notice a long time before the sign appeared at the physical site.
